Mexican cuisine is renowned for its bright flavours and fresh ingredients - a perfect antidote to the year-round tropical heat. You wouldn’t peg the Mexican kitchen as the birthplace of one of the most warming and comforting cold-weather stews...but it is! Pozole is a traditional stew often served at family celebrations and holidays. Its base is hominy - corn kernels that have been dried and soaked in a mineral bath. We’re pairing that with ground pork, tart tomatillos, a unique and robust spice blend, and plenty of fresh and savoury veggies.

    Mise en place
    Peel and thinly slice the onion and garlic. Remove and discard the papery husks of the tomatillos; medium dice the tomatillos. Drain and rinse the hominy. Quarter the lime. Peel, pit and medium dice the avocado; toss with the juice of 1 lime wedge to prevent browning (double the lime juice for 4 portions). Trim off and discard the stem ends of the radishes; cut into matchsticks. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems.

    Brown the pork
    In a large pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the ground pork; season with S&P. Cook, frequently breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned and just cooked through. Transfer to a bowl and set aside, leaving any drippings and browned bits (or fond) in the pot.

    Cook the aromatics & tomatillos
    In the reserved pot of fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the garlic, onion and all but a pinch of the spice blend; season with S&P. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, until softened and fragrant. Add the tomatillos. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until the tomatillos have softened and begun to thicken into a sauce.

    Finish the soup
    Add the demi-glace and 2 cups of water to the pot of tomatillos (double for 4 portions). Cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until thoroughly combined. Add the hominy and browned pork; heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and simmer, 7 to 9 minutes, until slightly reduced in volume. Remove from the heat and stir in the juice of 1 lime wedge (double for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste.

    Toast the pepitas
    While the soup simmers, in a small pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the pepitas and remaining spice blend; season with S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 4 minutes, until toasted and fragrant. (Be careful, as the pepitas may pop as they cook.) Transfer to a small bowl.

    Finish & serve
    Divide the finished soup between your bowls. Garnish with the avocado, radishes, cilantro and toasted pepitas. Serve with the remaining lime wedges on the side. Bon appétit!
